Councillors discuss the Dowding Planning Application.
Councillors met in private session on Thursday 2 December to agree next steps, should Next PLC submit an appeal following Epping Forest District Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for a warehouse and distribution centre earlier in the year.
Next Planning Application
In a statement, the Council said:
The Next Planning Application for Dowding Way, Waltham Abbey was a major planning application refused by the Council. Councillors received further legal advice and agreed their strategy for defending the decision, should Next submit an appeal.
Any planning applicant has a right of appeal when a council refuses a planning application. Appeals are held before an independent government-appointed planning inspector. Next must confirm in December whether it intends to appeal.
